My Philosophy

Data is only data until analysis, logic and critical thinking are applied. When properly analyzed, your data becomes a useful solution management needs to make informed financial decisions.

Working With Me

To gain a full understanding of a client’s problems and create the most accurate solution, I perform all client engagements myself working from my office or the client’s site if needed.

You deserve expertise for custom data solutions.

As a former operations manager and Fortune 500 internal auditor, I understand how vital the proper data solutions are to an organization’s success. That is why I have spent my career helping many companies streamline data processes that generate timely, accurate reports .

You always have direct access to me.

When you hire an expert to help solve your financial problems, you want direct access to that professional. I work directly with you and your team during the entire engagement.
